Whether they are covered in braces, filed to fangs, or are starting to fall out, teeth are very important to our health. Our relationship with our teeth starts at an early age. The discovery of growing teeth by young minds must be amazing.
One day you’re a happy toddler, the next you’re screaming in pain because these little white demons are ripping their way through your gums and to the surface for some air. Then we are stuck with these high maintenance food crushers to pamper for the rest of our lives.
Demanding consistent cleaning and flossing, teeth are the first thing we think about in the morning and the last thing we see in the mirror at night. We buy expensive electric brushes, pastes, floss and even bleaching strips for our chompers.
We teach our kids to brush them twice a day, or after meals and we give them pointers on how to brush them. But do we even know the correct way to brush our own teeth? At least we aren’t using urine to bleach them anymore.
